Need a Health Boost? Learn About IV Therapy

Most people associate IV therapy with being in the hospital. But this common method of delivering fluids and medications directly into your bloodstream can be used for much more. IV therapy can also supply your body with the essential vitamins and nutrients you need to stay in peak condition. 

At The Pazio Institute, Dr. Alexander Paziotopoulos brings men and women in the West Loop neighborhood of Chicago the most advanced techniques available to help them achieve maximum physical, mental, and emotional health. Whether you’re looking for more natural ways to resolve a specific medical condition, or you’re looking for a cutting-edge way to improve your overall health, IV therapy may be able to help you.

How IV therapy works

IV therapy infuses your body with a special blend of vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients directly into your bloodstream. Unlike oral supplements, this approach provides higher levels of nutrient absorption. That’s because IV therapy bypasses your digestive system, so you don’t lose nutrients to metabolization.

Some of the most common ingredients Dr. Paziotopoulos uses in IV therapy include:

The beauty of IV therapy is that Dr. Paziotopoulos can tailor your intravenous infusion to your medical history and unique needs. He can also create a customized blend if you have a special sporting event coming up, like an important game or marathon. 

IV therapy can help in many ways

Dr. Paziotopoulos recommends IV therapy for a variety of reasons, including:

In addition to vitamins and minerals, Dr. Paziotopoulos also offers chelation therapy during his IV therapy treatments. Chelation therapy uses ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid, or EDTA, to flush unhealthy toxins from your body. As EDTA travels through your bloodstream, it collects heavy metals and other toxins — such as lead, silver, and fatty deposits — so you can safely eliminate them from your body through your urine. 

There are several kinds of chelation therapies, and Dr. Paziotopoulos might recommend including chelation therapy in your IV treatment if you’re fighting a bacterial or fungal infection or if you’re at risk of developing heart-related health conditions, such as high cholesterol. 

IV therapy is easy

During your appointment, Dr. Paziotopoulos mixes your infusion and inserts your IV into your hand or arm. It usually takes 30-60 minutes for the solution to finish entering your body, and it’s typically a relaxing experience. Afterwards, you can resume your normal activities.

You can expect to see results within days, including improved energy levels and focus. These nutrient levels should remain for 2-3 weeks. To maintain long-term results, Dr. Paziotopoulos will work closely with you to design an IV therapy plan to support your overall health based on your personal goals and medical history.
